The Kansas State Board of Education deserves credit for its swift work toward finding a state education commissioner to replace Bob Corkins (in photo). But the board gets no credit for transparency: The names of the five finalists have not been released, and the board’s April 26 interviews will be behind closed doors. It’s good to know that all five have education experience, that two are from Kansas and that chairman Bill Wagnon is “very pleased with the quality of the candidates.” But especially after the fiasco that resulted in Corkins’ hiring, Kansans deserve to know more about the hunt for the state’s next education czar.
